The first and foremost of the pillars and the journey’s beginning is Rehnumai.
Access to information, the most fundamental of rights of any human being is a scarcity when it comes to persons with disabilities in Pakistan. They are not aware of all the rights, benefits and processes they are entitled to and have to struggle in all walks of life.
Through Rehnumai, NOWPDP provides guidance to persons with disabilities and paves their way towards a more inclusive society. Rehnuma is a portal possessing all sorts of information for persons with disabilities.
Rehnumai means guidance, to facilitate a person with disability in receiving the right accommodations to achieve independence.

Sairah Amro | NOWPDP Trainee
I had spent my entire life selling homemade pickles in my village, Rahim Amro. I have a lower-limb physical disability but that never came in my way. However, after the sudden death of my husband, I became the only bread earner of my extended family. My meager earnings could hardly feed my family and at that time I thought of switching to a more stable profession that does not require constant traveling.
This is when I came to know about Moriro Markaz through one of my village kids who is getting special education there. I visited the center and got to know about the facilities that they were offering. I quickly enrolled myself in stitching training. I now stitch clothes for many of my villagers at a relatively low price.
